Inspiration Destination Challenge 9

This week we have the sponsor, Sweet 7, for our challenge over at Inspiration Destination. Come and join us, remember we are always Anything Goes with a digital element.

My image is Sunflowers in Vase and can be bought here:

I decided to make a DL card to follow the elongated shape of the vase and it turned out to be a very simple card. This is one of those cards when I'm thinking maybe I should have done something else with it, it's not one of my favourites.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers and then cut it with a Spellbinders label die before adding some Creative Expressions Cosmic Shimmer dots to the corners - in bronze. The sheet of pale yellow Papermill card was embossed as the background. A narrow bronze organza ribbon from Create and Craft was wrapped around the bottom. The image was raised on foam dots near the top and then an Inkadinkado sentiment was stamped in brown Memento ink and cut with a Sue Wilson resplendent rectangle die. This was fixed between the image and the ribbon and had a wooden flower added as the finishing touch. Hmm.............................
